Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is one of the most exciting sides in the tournament. Although they have never lifted the IPL trophy. But, still, they are looked down on as one of the overwhelming favorites to win the IPL. In IPL 2020, they finally managed to reach the playoffs. But, due to poor performance of the top-order in the qualifier forced RCB to a humiliating win against Delhi Capitals.
It’s been more than 12 seasons but RCB is yet to find the weak link in the side. They have the likes of AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli on the team. But, still, they have failed in getting their hands on the trophy. RCB management analyzed the previous edition performance and came with an approach to pick a well-established middle-order batsman and a couple of death bowlers.
The Bangalore-based franchise didn’t care about the money and they splashed money like water to get the players like Glenn Maxwell, Kyle Jamieson, Daniel Christian on their side. Even their competitors were surprised to witness the aggressive approach of the RCB think-tank. However, now it will be interesting to watch if their move to throw money on players will backfire or not at the end of Indian Premier League 2021.
